Description 

I'm really not sure what the hell is the deal with this route. Two meandering bolts, some bolts w/o hangers and bolt holes, and poorly placed anchors for easy TR access suggest the equipper might have been high.

Follow the first distinct line (2 bolts) to the right of the giant dihedral corner. Thin face climbing leads to a right-slanting crack finish.

Protection 

2 bolts start the climb and then it's nothing until the two bolt anchor at the top.... though you probably can fish something into the top crack, it still will be fairly spicy. In setting up a TR, be CAREFUL! the bolts are low on a slopey face. Best to set it up while anchored in to something or someone secure.
